Nurturing Newborns offers respite to families in crisis. They serve caregivers of infants and children using a model based upon the Fussy Baby Network Model. Nurturing Newborns supports parents through an infant mental health and prevention-focused home visiting model and provides respite during times of need. Their program focuses particularly on parents of children who have spent time in a NICU. Upon their child’s return home, parents often feel anxious, scared, isolated and overwhelmed. Through their respite program, trained and experienced staff offer short term support and care for parents and their children during times of difficulty. The goal of the respite program is to help parents come through a hard time with caregiving and feel stronger, more confident, and competent. This population is often underserved, and they require skilled respite providers. The duration of services typically ranges from three to six months, but families who are at increased risk or whose children have disabilities have received services for up to two years.
